Bishop O’Reilly Class of 1977 Holiday Get Togethers

Fellow classmates,

Sue Klecha O’Donnell suggested we get together over the Christmas Holiday. We’re taking it a step further.

This is for anyone in town over Thanksgiving and / or Christmas. If you are interested, join me and whoever shows up at Grotto Pizza at the Wyoming Valley Mall on the Saturdays after the holidays. The dates are November 29th and December 27th. We’ll meet between 6:30 and 7:00 PM.

Last year, we met after Christmas. We had a fun time. If you are interested in attend, please email me at fishfishr (at) juno.com or call me at (570) 262-5463. This way I have an idea of how many seats we need. However, we can always add on.

I hope many of you can attend. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
